Cornell University

Fischbach Lab

We apply engineering principles to understand how tissue microenvironments influence cancer initiation, development, and therapy response.

I received my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Prior to joining the Fischbach lab, I worked as a design engineer at an orthopedics start-up, then as a Research Associate in the Langer and Yaffe Labs at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in at Cornell University’s Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering.

My current interests are in tissue engineering, cancer metastasis, cell-signaling, and advanced imaging modalities. Outside of the lab, I am interested in Science Policy & Communications, K-12 education, and enjoy hiking, running, and cycling.
